Chevrolet has commenced production of the Groove and it is a Hyundai Creta rival.
Chevrolet has commenced production of the Groove compact SUV, which is based on the Baojun 510. The Baojun 510 is a compact SUV that is positioned below the Baojun 530 which is also known as the MG Hector in the Indian market and Chevrolet Captiva in certain other markets. The Chevrolet Groove will rival the Hyundai Creta in markets like Latin America, Middle East and Africa.
The 2020 Chevrolet Groove will be the company’s cheapest UV and it will be slotted below the Tracker SUV. The Groove doesn’t see major design changes over the 510. It will be available in two variants – LT and Premier. The vehicle gets features like a panoramic sunroof, 16-inch wheels, auto climate control, and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
While the production has begun, Chevrolet is yet to reveal this car officially. Once it is revealed, we will get to know the specifications in detail too. The Baojun 510 went into production in January 2017 and this vehicle gets a 1.5-litre petrol engine with MT and AT options.
It remains to be seen whether MG Motor launches the vehicle in India or not. If yes, it will be positioned below the Hector and will rival the likes of the Nissan Kicks and Kia Seltos, along with the Creta. The 510 was spotted undergoing testing in India but MG is actually gearing up to launch the ZS petrol here which is why I think the Baojun 510 won’t arrive in our market.
